Anytime changes to several of the front teeth are considered, Dr. Toomey offers his patients the option to have a Smile Design created. This allows the patient to “try-on” their new smile before deciding to proceed.
We begin the process in our office, so that Dr. Toomey can effectively communicate his goals for your smile to the lab. Then our patient goes to the lab in Columbia, MD, where measurements and photos can be taken. The shape of your face, skin color and how your lips cross your smile line are all considered. About 2 weeks later, you return to our office to try them on. They are very thin and can only be applied by Dr. Toomey. This allows the patient to think about the shape of each new tooth and determine if they like the color. Once it has been decided to proceed, these models are used to make both the temporary teeth and the final teeth.
